The impact of ending nuclear power generation

If you've followed this blog at all, you know I'm a huge proponent of nuclear power as the least bad solution to our energy needs. That's still true following Japan's nuclear power crisis following their earthquake (note that U.S. reactors have much better containment vessels than those failing in Japan).

If you think we can do without nuclear power, here's a column that might help convince you otherwise:

What The End Of Nuclear Power Would Actually Mean For The World

Further, it's a good idea to build more modern, safe nuclear power plants. Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace makes the case here:

Going Nuclear

We simply can't do without nuclear power. If we plan to stop using oil, we need many more nuclear power plants, and soon.
